The Yip Yips!

Nov 09, 2012

Mouths closed

Remember the Yip Yip martians from Sesame Street?!  These were a huge hit as the kids went down our town’s main drag where we have trick-or-treating!  The “lips” have rolled up fleece in them to keep their form, with dowel rods attached on the inside at the bottom so the kids could control opening and closing the mouths.  I used mosquito netting to make the part inside the mouths where the kids could see out.  There are styrofoam cones in the tops of the heads.  These were a blast!!  They’re from last year and the kids still play with them.
